What is hair transplantation?
Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that moves hair from one part of the body to another. It can correct hair loss due to genetics, age, medications and other factors.
It can also be used for cosmetic purposes or to create a natural-looking hairline. The most common areas of the body where hair is transplanted include:
- back of the head
What are the types of hair transplantation?
- Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
- Direct Hair Implantation (DHI)
- Sapphire Follicular Unit Extraction (Sapphire FUE)
Direct hair implantation (DHI) is a modification of the FUE technique. In FUE, a specialist manually cuts channels in your scalp before implanting hair follicles. During DHI, they use a specialized pen-shaped tool that can do both at the same time.
Sapphire hair transplantation is the latest modification in FUE hair transplantation, whereby sapphire blades and microchannels are opened at the recipient site. Sapphire blades are not made from natural sapphire crystals, but instead from a single crystal of synthetic sapphire made from aluminum oxide.
What happens during the procedure?
The hair transplant procedure is done under local anesthesia. In a typical surgery, the doctor will start by using tiny punches to remove grafts from the donor area. These grafts can be as tiny as 1-2 hairs each, but they are carefully placed in rows to look natural when they grow out. The specialist will then place the grafts in the balding area and cover them with tiny sutures (stitches) for added security.
A dressing will be placed on your head following surgery and you must keep it on until instructed otherwise by your doctor. It's important to follow all of his/her aftercare instructions closely while healing from this type of procedure because scar tissue can form around some of these stitches if not treated properly—and this could lead to further complications down the road!
What can I expect after the procedure?
You can expect some discomfort for a few days following the procedure. You may experience swelling and bruising at the sites of your grafts. It's unlikely that you'll be able to return to work for at least a week, but you don't need to stay in bed or avoid normal activity after surgery.
Some hair will grow back immediately, but it will take several months before all of the transplanted hairs begin growing. This is why it is important not to wear hats or use scarves while recovering—you want those baby hairs to have room to grow! If you're like most people, you'll notice that your new hair grows exactly where your old hair used to be, just slightly thicker and healthier than before.
Is a Hair Transplant Permanent?
I'm sure you've considered a hair transplant, but you may be wondering if it's permanent. Sure, the idea of being able to grow new hair is exciting, but how long will it last? The short answer is that yes, hair transplants are a permanent procedure—but not completely bulletproof. If you're taking certain medications or suffering from an underlying medical condition, your hair may not remain permanently. In addition, It is also important to choose a highly qualified and experienced hair transplant specialist and high-tech devices to ensure permanent results. A skilled specialist will be able to carefully plan and execute the procedure to minimize the risk of complications and maximize the chances of a successful outcome.
